Hello friends! I know it has been pretty quiet over here on my little slice of the internet lately but that is changing pretty soon! I will be catching up on nearly 9 months worth of blogs! HOLY COW right??
- But -
To kick off this 2019 wedding season, I am starting with Missy & Sean!
I absolutely loved being able to get to know Missy & Sean & their families on their wedding day! They were all so sweet and Missy has the most beautiful spirit about her.
It’s been a while since I have gotten to find the time to blog my sessions. Between picking up a job in webdesign and attempting to maintain my crazy crew here— I just haven’t had the time or energy to get to sit down and share my wonderful experiences I have had lately & I hate that so I am coming back stronger than ever!
I couldn’t think of a better session to jump back into blogging with than the Storm Family’s fall mini-session! We faced many rain checks to get to this beautiful fall day but I couldn’t have asked for anything to have been better.
Daniella & Michael | Engagement | Lower Peach Tree, Alabama
March 17th, 2018
Daniella and Michael chose to have their engagement shoot on Michael's family property in Lower Peach Tree, Alabama. Perhaps you have heard of the King-Criswell Plantation house in Uriah, Alabama? Well, Michael is a direct descendant of the King lineage. When we arrived at the property, Daniella began sharing with me a lot of the history that went into the land. It was a working plantation at one point in time, and held it's own community on the property, equipped with a post office & corner store which are still standing today.
Joyful laughs, close friends and family, details colored in soft blues, pinks, and creams... that is what filled the First Baptist Church of Jackson, Alabama on the third of June. I love when brides have attention for detail and when your family gets to be a part of making those details pop it becomes all the more special.
I love weddings, I hope to do them for a long, long time. But the one thing I love to shoot the most (other than weddings) are Seniors. I love getting to know them and see their personalities and sweet spirits come alive in my camera. It's almost like I get to go back in time for just a little while and relive those days myself when life was carefree and fun and my only responsibilities were making sure I showed up to the football game on time. These moments seem to last forever when you're in them and then the next thing you know you're planning the trip to go to your high-school reunion.
I met Kaitlin at Serda's Coffee Shop in Downtown Mobile to discuss her visions for her wedding day and to learn more about the love she shared with Colby. From the moment we started talking I knew that she and her family had such a sweet spirit. I knew that I wanted to show that through the images I captured on their wedding day...
How many times do we as artists feel stifled in our creativity? I know that I do. Don't get me wrong, I love what I do and Weddings and Seniors are my favorite sessions because I have the most freedom with how I work; but there are so many times I am left wanting more. More from my clients, more from my photos, more from my art in general. I have inspirational photographers who I follow and wish with all my heart that I could somehow, someday, be as inspirational as they are.
